Gear Needed to Get into Mountain Biking

Getting into mountain biking, back in 2016, was one of the best decisions I ever made. Mountain biking has taken me from mountain tops to desert landscapes, with some of the best times with friends I’ve ever had. So, with that being said, mountain biking can be a daunting to get into. The websites like PinkBike and Backcountry will make it seem like you need a $10,000 mountain bike and all the top gear in order to hit your local trail. I’ll let you in on a little secret… that couldn’t be further from the truth. I got started with …

2020 I spent a lot of time riding my mountain bike and I wanted to put together this list of my favorite/top 10 trails I rode this year. The trails span Colorado, Utah, Oregon, and Idaho.

Check’m out and enjoy. #1 Ribbon Trail – Grand Junction, CO Flat out, this trail is unlike anything you’ve ever ridden. Wide open desert slaps that descend a thousand feet from the Colorado Plateau.

Latest Video Uploads

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been dedicated more mornings to editing a lot of the footage I’ve taking over the year. So far, I was able to finish the Oregon trip, two videos from a mountain biking trip to Grand Junction, and finally the video from January for Courtney’s Birthday down in Kanab. Hope you enjoy! Van Life in Oregon Like many of us, who have scrolled endlessly through social media seeing those incredible sprinter van builds, perched high over some scenic overlook, we too shared that jealousy. Which is why, we’ve twice now rented camper vans from Outdoorsy.com. …

Long Weekend in Ketchum, Idaho | A.K.A. Sun Valley

Like the rest of the population, we all try to get out and make 4th of July weekend more memorable than the average weekend. That extra day off from work, perfect weather, and of course the excitement of being overly patriotic for a day or two, it’s hard to beat. Back when we lived on the east coast, 4th of July usually meant sitting in traffic for hours in order to spend a day or two at the beach. But that’s rarely the case since we’ve moved to Utah. This year, we decided to head north towards cooler temperatures and …

First Bikepacking Trip | Video

First Bikepacking trip was a success! It’s like bike touring, but on a mountain bike, and over some gnarly terrain. You strap everything you need for a night of camping onto your bike and go have an adventure. A quick, overnight trip up to the Wasatch Crest from Park City after work. My buddy Tyler joined me for this sufferfest of a climb, but was all worth it the next morning for a 10mile descent back home. The Route we took started in Kimball Junction, then headed up the UOP, up BLT, followed by a very steep climb on Moose …

Enduro & XC Mountain Bike Racing | Lessons Learned from my 2020 Season

They say, no matter what fitness or skill level you’re at, racing will always make you a better rider. To that, I can completely agree. This 2020 season has been filled with many ups and downs, in both XC and Enduro. Even though these Midweek Mountain BIke races are just local, they are still highly competitive and filled with some of the best riders in the state. And this year, after riding pretty well in the Sport Category in 2019, I decided to jump up to the Expert Category (right below Pro). And boy was I in for a rude …

Vanlife Trip In Oregon

Like many of us, who have scrolled endlessly through social media seeing those incredible sprinter van builds, perched high over some scenic overlook, we too shared that jealous. Which is why, we’ve twice now rented camper vans from Outdoorsy.com. The first time, we rented a van for a trip to San Diego in November. But now with Covid canceling all our plans for spring and summer trips, we had to switch up our destination and decided to stay local and explore Oregon via a road trip! To make it even more exciting, we rented a built-out Ram ProMaster Van to …

Joys of Early Season Mountain Biking and Trail Running

It’s the spring, which normally means slightly warmer temperatures and a whole lot of time skiing the amazing Utah corn snow. Unfortunately with all of this Covid-19 craziness, those activities have been held off. So instead of skis, most of us here in Park City have transitioned to wheels and runs as the south facing hillsides are drying out. With new activities, come new challenges to get into shape for. And how horribly out of shape I realize I am. Zachary KenneyMy name is Zachary Kenney and I’m an adventure filmmaker & photographer.  My passion is to tell stories that …
